It's just been one of those days, God.
It all started at seven this morning when I put a run in my new
As I made my rounds it seemed as if I counted a million pulse
beats and gave pills by the carloads. I fed Your sick with I.V.'s
and diets . . . till I felt I needed hypos. This, God, filled my day,
alone with buzzers, charts and Doctor's orders. But still, God, I
checked all labels three times and was careful to give
the right dosage,
to the right patient,
at the right time,
by the right method.
Throughout the day, God, I wore my happiest smile even for
those who cursed.
Throughout the day, although I complained, I thank you, God,
for letting me do the work of a nurse.

We, the yearbook staff, found it difficult this year to dedicate the yearbook to
only one person. There were several good candidates this year with more than
worthy qualities. The two people we chose to dedicate the yearbook to have
unforgetable qualities in helping the students, as being a part of the educational
staff, a sensitive person, and many more qualities. Therefore, we are proud to
dedicate the yearbook to Mrs. Phyllis Roth and Mrs. Ruth Shaffer. Also, we would like
to recognize Mrs. Pat Taylor for her work in keeping the school in a clean and
Mrs. Pat Taylor
The 1981 Pargon has been dedicated to two ladies who have been a tremendous asset to Lakeview
School of Nursing and the nursing profession as a whole. They have been outstanding instructors, they
have been an inspiration and a person to whom we could always turn to for guidance and assistance,
knowing they would always be willing to do all they could to help us. This is but a small token of
appreciation for two ladies whom will always be irreplaceable, Mrs. Phyllis Roth and Mrs. Ruth Shaffer.
We'd like to thank you
For the world you've helped us see.
And smile one final time,
For the light you said could be.
You filled our minds with echos
Of hopes and dreams to be.
You inspired us to carry on,
Please lead others where you have led me.
And, we'll walk away,
Through the doors you have opened.
Contemplating the path
Which lies before me.
Holding high the torch,
You help light for our future.

We the 1981 graduating class of Lakeview School of Nursing hereby declare the following to be our last will and testament:
Vickie Anders- wills that she will not return.
Alice Bolin- of sound mind and body at least until after graduation, wills to Janeane Haverkamp. a freshman, the ability of year
book editor and hope she can get the picture of Mrs. Shaffer and Dr. Shaffer doing the bump on 4 North Nursing Station. To fellow
dorm members, I will the ability to get the dishes done without having Housemother Ruby down their neck. To Sandy Hamilton, the
ability to administer an injection on the instructor.
Mary Bork- wills her set of eyelid crutches to DonnaLee Yoho, for those mornings when she finds it impossible. See her after
graduation to pick them up. You'll need them.
Jamie Brooks- wills Teresa Huffman those eight problem essays and the math test that at the beginning of the semester the
instructors promised us that we wouldn't have to do and then later assigned.
Dan Combs- wills the ability to make it through three years at LMC as a minority group to Steve Long.
Shirley Combs- wills to my fellow classmates my migraine headaches from worry, sleepless nights of studying for tests and clinical
preps My "so called" weekends devoted to case studies to finish or Monday tests. All the McDonald's suppers I ate because I had
no time to cook. All the expensive gas I used in Psych. All the 8 hour shifts I paid LMC to work. All the time I left my car parked in "no
parking" areas with tickets on them in order not to be late for classes. She leaves all her psychosomatic symptomology she
acquired after discussing each disease in lecture. She hopes you will look upon these as she did and does now, and gains
something from them other than tiredness, broke, and headaches.
Karen Cox and Jody Hanson- wills the underclassmen the ability to share an apartment with another nursing student without
committing any criminal acts of violence on each other.
Lynn Galloway, Debby Kirts, and Patty Maul- wills their ability to persevere in traveling IL Route 1, day after day after day to
Tracy Silvers, Steve Long, and Patsy Simpson.
Tammy Harrell- being of sound mind and body and sick and tired of driving does hereby will the following: To Susan Shellabarger.
her ability to resuscitate a dead car and her ability to maintain a long distance relationship (remember absence makes the heart
grow fonder). To Jackie Long, her ability to be a newlywed and finish school (it certainly makes life interesting). And to all future
dorm residents who don't do their dishes, her ability to do dishes (Tammy says to see her Monday for lessons with minimal fees.)
Dormitory dishes have been mentioned twice now, I wonder if that's a hint?!
Joyce Kinson and Eileen Parr or is that Joyce Parr and Eileen Kinson? Oh well, whatever. They have decided to will their identity
confusion the past three years to the junior class and to help the situation from becoming even more confusing, they have
decided to provide a box of stick -on name tags.
Phyllis Maxwell-alias bird-being of sound mind and body, wills Dawn, Debbie, Stephanie, Yo-Yo, Sandy, Sue, Melanie, Linda and
Tammy her ability to fly off her perch during vacation and return to the home, without falling behind in the reauirements of the
Debbie Serpinas- wills her aspirin bottle, headaches, bloodshot eyes, tired body, and ability to stay up till 3:00 a.m. studying for
tests to the freshman class. May God help you.
Wendy Reed- wills her ability to stay out many late nights and still look as though she's half alive the next day to the
Diane Rodgers- wills her community health book and experience to Jackie Long. She said she would will someone her PR's, but
she's hate to cause someone so much unhappiness. She also wills her ability to cope and get throught school to all underclassmen.
To some poor soul who likes to write, the eight essays she had to do this semester. Most importantly of all she wills her ability to pass
the math test when it comes down to the wire.
Carol Volkerding- wills to whoever can fill her shoes, the prestigious ability to defend the significant and trivia with instructors,
fellow class members, and of course V.I.P.'s from LMC administeration. Always remember to stick with your initial responses as it
usually proved to be her best defense. One final note, "I rarely convinced the other party that my point was just as correct as
theirs. But as Mrs. Gates would say, Carol, that sounds like a growth producing experience!"
And Spring Noah- of sound mind and failing body wills her hypersecretory stomach, Mylanta II, and ability to survive LMC with
sanity to Dee Tyler, a junior.
Graduating class wills the following:
-The ability to argue about test guestions.
-To use the nursing process in the presence of the instructor.
-To all freshmen and juniors, we will our persistence. HANG-IN-THERE, all the work is worth it!!
CLASS OF 1981
IN TEN YEARS
Now in ten years passing, we have come to see,
Everyone hopefully in harmony.
Now Spring and Debbie were quite a pair.
They both took off, who knows where?
Now Diane Rodgers went to Houston, you see,
And she's nursing cowboys with broken knees.
Patty Maul and Tina got big in the end,
And they're both working on number ten!
On weekends Tammy was ready to fly.
After ten years of marriage, she's livin' with her guy!
And Vincie thought psychology was really a pest,
but she wrote the sequel to "Cookoo's Nest"!
And poor old Shirly had to learn to spell,
but she's finally learned how to make people well.
Dan the man hasn't found his mate,
but he's working hard for the Pearly Gate!
Now what do we see for Carol Volderding?
Working with doctors wasn't really her thing.
So she joined the army, and much to her dismay,
The army has doctors, even to this day!
Louise is a grandma, and always wanted to be,
so she signed up to work in gerontology.
Margaret in the E.D. listens to the woes,
so she finally quit her job, and married twinkle toes!
And Phyllis was really a good bird,
so she flew to Colorado, and gave him her word.
And Joyce always thought, "Bedpans a drudge!"
So she finally quit her job and went to work for a judge!
Since Alice was the author of the Paragon,
She sent it for a Nobel Prize, and finally won!
Debbie, Lynn, and Jamie are quite a three,
But they really missed that good old redwood tree!
They left this land, where the weather gets mucky,
and they moved to the hills, in grand ole' Kentucky!
Now Jody and Karen were always in flight,
but they're still looking for Mister Right!
And little Peggy she hasn't aged,
Rumor has it, she's till engaged!
Now don't get bored, there's only nine more left,
so open up your ears and dont be deaf.
And Becky is the next one on our list,
When Russ got Rusty, she gave him her fist.
And Romona is now, the head of Lakeview.
Her schooling days are finally through.
Wendy Reed still has her new car,
due to gas prices, she can't drive it far.
Gloria Phliederer works in Peds,
and on her days off, she likes to read.
Eileen Kinsen, quiet as a pin,
we never heard from her, what a sin!
Vicki is doing fine, after all her ills,
because for them she took some pills.
Leslie Taylor finally found a mate,
Now let's hope she sets a date.
Here we come to Janet, our president.
She got married with good intent.
She had some trouble, said a sailor,
cuz she had to live by Norma Taylor!
Mary Bork lives in Rantoul.
She plays all day by the pool.
Now in this prophecy we can find,
many jokes and many many rhymes.
Let us hope that in ten years,
we have a lot of laughs and few few tears!
